But I gotta give these folks a "thumbs up" for great service, impeccable cleanliness and welcome in their restaurant and the standard of BBQ one would expect from a chain restaurant. I eat here when I am in a rush and every time I am impressed with how well run this place is. Great management!

Smithfield chicken and barbecue is delicious for the barbecue I am not a fan of the chicken because it is too dry to me.

Excellent service. The employees there are always upbeat and happy. We always typically go for the fried chicken and tell hush puppies. They always meet expectations and are amazing. The BBQ sandwiches are also excellent. The atmosphere is nice and the parking lot is always clean and never too crowded. This is my go to local fried chicken joint.

I brought my 6 man crew in here for the first time. Clean parking lot. Ample parking. Very clean dining area. Very friendly staff. Clean restrooms. And the food was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a great meal and experience.

Everything about this place say "Southern". From the way the employees are dressed (a tie for male employees) to the way they treat you -- nice and polite. The food and menu is OK and you go to a place like this for very particular type of food - BBQ and fried chicken. It's North Carolina style pulled pork BBQ... More

I am a fan of vinegar based BBQ. I came here on the way from doing a little shopping at lunch. I ordered the bbq and chicken combo plate with Brunswick stew and baked beans. I went through the drive thru. The location is convenient just off of Davis Drive. There is plenty of parking in the lot. I have... More

Not a fancy place but really the nicest people working there and the food is really, really good. Hush puppies are excellent as is the pork. The kindest sweetest man gave us a bag of pork skins at no charge to try and told us to throw the away if we didn't like them. If I'm not mistaken they sell... More

I ordered the BBQ & Shrimp combo plate (actually, it comes on two plates), and it was more than I could eat. Full disclosure: I already know that the Texas and KC schools of BBQ are the best, so I knew I was going to have to make an adjustment to what is called BBQ in NC, but the shredded... More

This is very simple. The food is basic cookie-cutter barbeque found at any of the Smithfield Chicken 'n Barbeque locations. It is consistent from the fried chicken to the 'cue to the fries and hush puppies. What sets this place below the others is cleanliness. Tables are not cleaned after patrons leave. The garbage can on the patio was over-flowing... More
